Abnormal Sleep Cycles

Hi all-

Just wondering how many folks can include irregular sleep in their bag of MS goodies?

My hubby had never slept well...always had to listen to music or talk radio to fall asleep, didn't need more than six hours. Had an "over-active " mind. Never had regular sleep habits (I'm an eight hour 10pm-6am gal, so it became a joke in our family) He was also a snorer and thrasher, and a major blanket ...

lp results- no o bands and question about albumin and IgA

I went and picked up my lab results yesterday but am not seeing the dr until monday and wanted to see if anyone knew anything about this-

I was releived to see there were no o-bands- is this pretty much a definite as to no ms? I know some people with ms don't have them, but it's a low percentage, right? I haven't gotten the mri results and only had one lesion on brainstem back ...

Occ Health Nurse a moron?

I had to see Occ Health nurse at work today as I requested permission to park in visitor bays because the main car park is a 10 minute walk from my office - which I can find tricky.

The nurse went all out and then told me that in her opinion it probably wasn't MS at all but the numbness / weakness I was having in my R arm is probably due to a whip ...

Strange study

I was looking for the full text of a study about birth monthe related effects in MS (hypothesis about sun exposure during pregnancy), and I found a strange abstract from the same author : "Origins of magic: review of genetic and epigenetic effects". After googlization, I found the full text :

Quite funny, but I hope no medical resarch funding has been granted for this...

Professional and personal dental care is required to keep te

Personal dental care is very essential. If normal brushing is not done properly, bacterial plaque builds up.

Dental plaque is a soft, sticky, colorless film of bacteria that is formed on the teeth. The bacteria multiply rapidly in this film and can cause infections. The dental plaque has to be removed within 10-14 hours by brushing or else it hardens to form calculus or tartar. Once formed, calculus cannot be removed by normal brushing but ...

Did you ever suspect....?

Just curious, if anyone else ever suspected they had MS long before their dx? I was dx when I was 45 years old but I questioned it as far back as 35. I can't even remember why but I can remember thinking "do I have MS?" and "no, you'd be way sicker, don't be a hypocondriac!". Just wondering.... :?

CIS and spinal tap and fatigue

Early last year I had 2 events about 1 month apart, each followed by new MS type symptoms. MRIs following each event showed a new lesion in the brain. Almost a year out, the MRIs show no new activity and I haven't experienced new symptoms. A stong course of steroids knocked out most symptoms about half a year ago, though I've had lingering fatigue, which has at times been significant.
2 questions:
1)CIS and testing ...

Looking for new ideas about spasticity

Hi,
My husband has rather bad spastisty in the legs and probably bladder...has issues there anyhow. He does not want to take the Baclofen, because he can't afford to be any weaker or more tired at work...plus he just doesn't like the idea of taking separate pills for everything and having to worry about what's a symptom, what's a side-effect, and what he needs to avoid when taking them...
He is also not interested in ...

Neuro tomorrow - any advice?

I am seeing a neuro tomorrow for a first appt. I had a v negative experience with one in sept who basically dismissed me cos I was moving towns only a week or so after the appt and he couldn't be bothered.

Since then symptoms have gotten worse and I now have another initial consult in my new town. This time (unlike last) I have written down my symptoms so I don't get flustered.

Is ...
